The weather forecast here for Halloween… rain and possible snow… which means no trick-or-treaters at my house… which also means I get to eat the Halloween candy all by myself… scoreboard!
I usually go to the store this time of year and stock up on candy for the Trick-Or-Treaters, then turn off all the lights at my house on Halloween night, pretend I’m not home and then eat the leftover Halloween candy on Sunday afternoon while watching a football game. Just creepin’ it real.
Here’s another small glimpse of the book that I am currently illustrating. I tried something new on this one. On previous books I’ve always figured everything out on paper first. On this one, I did all the “figuring out” on the computer. I first created the book spreads in Photoshop, added text to the pages and then roughed out picture ideas with a blue digital brush. This approach really worked well for me as it kept my roughs fast and loose and made it extremely easy to try different layouts as I searched for the right picture.
